Along with this section, also see “Precautions” in the Help Guide. Notes on handling the product • This camera is designed to be dust resistant and splash resistant, but it is not guaranteed to completely prevent the ingress of dust or water droplets. • Do not leave the lens or the viewfinder exposed to a strong light source such as sunlight. Because of the lens’s condensing function, doing so may cause smoke, fire, or a malfunction inside the camera body or the lens. If you have to leave the camera exposed to a light source such as sunlight, attach the lens cap to the lens. • When you shoot with backlighting, keep the sun sufficiently far away from the angle of view. Otherwise, the sunlight may focus inside the camera and cause smoke or fire. Even if the sun is slightly away from the angle of view, it may still cause smoke or fire. • Do not directly expose the lens to beams such as laser beams. That may damage the image sensor and cause the camera to malfunction. • Do not look at sunlight or a strong light source through the lens when it is detached. This may result in unrecoverable damage to the eyes. • This camera (including accessories) has magnet(s) which may interfere with pacemakers, programmable shunt valves for hydrocephalus treatment, or other medical devices. Do not place this camera close to persons who use such medical devices. Consult your doctor before using this camera if you use any such medical device. • Increase the volume gradually. Sudden loud noises can damage your ears. Be especially careful when listening to headphones. • Do not leave the device parts within the reach of infants. It may cause an accident or injury. Notes on the monitor and electronic viewfinder • The monitor and electronic viewfinder are manufactured using extremely high-precision technology, and over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some small black dots and/or bright dots (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the monitor and electronic viewfinder. These dots are normal due to the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. GB77
GB 78 • When shooting with the viewfinder, you may experience symptoms such as eyestrain, fatigue, travel sickness, or nausea. We recommend that you take a break at regular intervals when you are shooting with the viewfinder. • If the monitor or electronic viewfinder is damaged, stop using the camera immediately. The damaged parts may harm your hands, face, etc. Notes on continuous shooting During continuous shooting, the monitor or viewfinder may flash between the shooting screen and a black screen. If you keep watching the screen in this situation, you may experience uncomfortable symptoms such as feeling of unwellness. If you experience uncomfortable symptoms, stop using the camera, and consult your doctor as necessary. Notes on recording for long periods of time or recording 4K movies • The camera body and battery may become warm with use – this is normal. • If the same part of your skin touches the camera for a long period of time while using the camera, even if the camera does not feel hot to you, it may cause symptoms of a low-temperature burn such as redness or blistering. Pay special attention in the following situations and use a tripod, etc. – When using the camera in a high- temperature environment – When someone with poor circulation or impaired skin sensation uses the camera – When using the camera with the [Auto Power OFF Temp.] set to [High]. Notes on using memory cards • When recording is finished, the memory card may become hot.
